Editorial Reviews

Review

Well-written, easy-to-understand, and a fierce warning for Americans to wake up. Couch potatoes take heed! --www.vaboomer.com

A book everyone should read ... I recommend it expecially to anyone who hates exercise and needs motivation to become physically active again. The book is an easy read and easy to put into action in your own life. --Satu Hattula, bodycapable.com

Thought-provoking ... former NASA scientist Vernikos ... argues that out-of-shape Americans need to startdoing exercises that make their bodies resist the force of gravity. The good news: dancing, jumping ... and gardening all count. A compelling call to action. --Booklist

A plan that can help everyone improve their health with small, simple actions .... The beauty of Dr. Vernikos' plan is its simplicity. Easy, natural, everyday movements tat take, literally, seconds and can provide a lifetime of benefits. --East Oregonian

An easy-to-use prescription for good health. And the best part? We don't have to spend excessive hours at the gym to produce health benefits. Anyone interested in maintining health and independence will want to read this book. --Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine

The genius of this doctor's advocated activities ... is that stirring pasta, rolling out cookie dough, and cracking nut shells for noshing all count as exercise. The book is filled with tips to create health-building movements into your day. --New York Journal of Books

Offers many tips on how people can increase their simple everyday movement, thereby improving their health. "Sitting Kills, Moving Heals" is a superb fitness book ... I highly recommend this book. --La Cross Tribune

NOT an exercise book, instead it contains a few simple 'activities' you can work into your everyday life. . . . Informative and helpful . . . I would recommend this book to anyone interested in finding some SIMPLE STEPS to living a healthier lifestyle. --www.BunnyCates.com


What a marvelously practical book! For anyone wondering how to remain active for as long as they can without necessarily becoming an athlete, this book's for you. Highly credible ... the writing is fluid and clear as well. --whatsheread.blogspot.com

After reading "Sitting Kills, Moving Heals," I've decided to change my fitness routine. Bottom line: If you are seriously interested in improving your fitness and health you may benefit from reading this book. --savvyworkinggal.blogspot.com
